The organizers of Pride Amsterdam are satisfied with a successful edition this year. All nine days of the festival were well attended and pleasant. Pride Amsterdam started last week with the Pride Walk demonstration through Amsterdam. Between 10 and 12 thousand people participated this year, compared to 7,500 last year, the spokesperson said. "We think that's because the Netherlands is becoming more intolerant, which automatically creates a counter-sound," the spokesperson said. The organization is pleased with the increasing number of companies that want to associate with Pride.
